The 36th annual QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning in Association with PNC Bank is known for its spectacular special shaped hot air balloons. This year’s festival features the world’s largest free-flying American flag, an 85-foot-tall Queen’s Guard and a 105-foot-tall Elvis.
One hundred hot air balloons including 10 special shapes will take flight twice each day over the scenic Hunterdon County countryside at this year’s festival, July 27-29, in Readington, N.J.
The festival offers three days of affordable family entertainment including a hugely popular live concert series featuring pop star Andy Grammer, legendary rockers Creedence Clearwater Revisited, alternative rock group Lifehouse and best-selling children’s recording artist Laurie Berkner; a nighttime balloon glow; fireworks; death-defying stunts from world record human cannonball Dave “The Bullet” Smith; the Running with the Balloons 5K; children’s amusement rides and entertainment; exciting interactive exhibits and hundreds of crafters and food vendors.
